DU logs fourth place NCAC finish

Led once again by first-year standout Brynn FitzGerald, the Big Red women's golf team completed the 72-hole North Coast Athletic Conference Championship Series in fourth-place as a team with 1,379 strokes.  At this weekend's NCAC Invitational, hosted by Ohio Wesleyan, DU also finished fourth with a team score of 690.

FitzGerald would lead Denison with a third-place overall finish in the series standings.  At this weekend's tournament she finished in a tie for fourth-place after rounds of 82 and 78.  FitzGerald earns first-team All-NCAC honors thanks to her 318 total.

Following FitzGerald on Sunday at Oakhaven Golf Course was Stacey Adams who fired an 86 on Sunday.  That lifted her to a tie for 13th place in the NCAC Invitational standings.  Overall she placed 14th in the series standings after rounds of 89, 84, 89, and 86.

Following Adams' total by just two strokes in the series standings was sophomore Amanda Castle.  She carded rounds of 93, 82, 86 and 89 on Sunday.  First-year Rebecca Rabb rounded out Denison's scoring with her 87 on Sunday.  That landed her in a tie for 20th overall.

As a team, Denison's 1,379 stroke total was an 84 stroke improvement over last year's fourth-place finish.
